To better understand how female employees are flowing into and up the executive pipeline at this management consulting firm, global managing director Dominic Barton compares their high-level representation against a set of internal goals each quarter, joined by the senior partners in charge of each global region. In related discussions, the directors of the firm’s women’s initiative meet with office leaders to assess the progress of female managers on the partner track and locate in-house sponsors for those who need them. The firm’s 1.5-day Pathway to Partner program, held in New York City, finds senior partners facilitating discussions among small groups of female engagement managers and/or associate principals, with a focus on helping them define their leadership vision. It’s part of a larger women’s curriculum that fosters skill-building and promotes a sense of community at every level.
